    Hello. I find this case to be very telling about what happens right now in Africa; spending fourteen months in prison for nothing is unbelievable. It’s the kind of things that should never happen anywhere. Is there any way for me to get in touch with Philip and James? I would love to tell them that they are not forgotten, that we were following their case with great interest, that what happens to them matters a lot. I would particularly appreciate if you could help me find a way to write or email to them because I want to support them directly. They have been through so much, they have to know how much we care for them! Thank you for helping. Bruno.
